Always very helpful when I go in.
I am new to seeing and they've taught me alot and are... never afraid to give me advice!
They never trick you into buying anything you don't need (like many other shops do) and they even recommend stuff to you that they dont supply because they are more bothered about helping you than making quick money and taking advantage.
Thank you very much for the great customer service!read more
Fantastic experience especially considering how busy this type of shop is right now. ... Would highly recommend shopping here as the service was better than anywhere else I've dealt with of late...read more
Discussed the cost and practicalities of leaving my Bernina sewing machine with Duncan at... Sewing direct whilst I was away, before I left. Duncan kept me up to date with costs of replacement parts and clarified costings with me before going ahead. Machine ready on my return from my trip, and my Bernina sounds well cared for and smooth once again. Thank you, Duncan. Helen Lread more

Brilliant and personal service. Nothing was too much trouble and Duncan was very... helpful, even carying my machine out to my car!. You are now my chosen service provider for my Bernina! Thank you.read more
The Sewing and Knitting Centre did a long overdue service on my rather ancient sewing... machine and did a marvelous job. I used my machine for the first time today and it really purred along where before it was definitely clattering along! They kept me well informed with the progress of the service and it was ready before the promised time. An advantage is the easy parking outside or in adjacent streets. Would recommend them.read more
Was able to park right outside the shop. Was very satisfied with the service and repair... of my Bernina sewing machine. Helpful, polite and friendly communication with Duncan. Would recommend this service to others. Thank you Duncan.read more
My 40 + years singer machine had stopped working for me but after SewingDirect replaced... some parts & serviced it for me it's running like a dream. So pleased I found this little gem of a shop in Beeston who also stock all sewing needs & knitting wool.read more
I found Duncan at Sewing Direct to be extremely helpful and generous in helping me find a... particular set of Dinosaur fat quarters I wanted to purchase. Despite them being out of stock everywhere he was able to source a pack from his suppliers and gave me a 10% discount code. This code turned out to be a £10 off code instead and rather than expecting me to pay more towards my purchase he very generously honoured the £10 off. I would thoroughly recommend Duncan and his company for going above and beyond to help me. This is definitely a business worth going back to again and again.read more
Duncan at the sewing and knitting centre was always just a click away if I needed any... assistance. Yarn came very quick and was vacuum packed for ease of posting. I have not used it yet but colours are spot on as to sample shown on website. They also do fabric which looks tempting. I would highly recommend this company.read more
A very good service. They were happy to spend time helping me find what I wanted even... though I was only looking for some thread. If you need to repair the sail on your sailing dinghy, this is the place to come.read more
